[Fix] No sound in Far cry 3 Error solution

Far cry 3 is one of the most popular PC game today. it’s released by ubisoft and has made more than a lot of fans in these days. far cry, as per wikipedia is

Far Cry 3 (stylized ‘FARCRY3’) is an open world first-person shooter video game developed mainly by Ubisoft Montreal in conjunction with Ubisoft Massive, Ubisoft Red Storm, Ubisoft Shanghai and Ubisoft Reflections and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game was originally set for release on September 4, 2012 in North America and September 6 in Europe; however, it was subsequently delayed until November 29, 2012 for Australia, November 30 for Europe, and December 4 for North America due to the developers tweaking the final release version of the game. A stand-alone expansion titled Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was released on April 30, 2013.

Far Cry 3 is set on a tropical island somewhere in the vicinity of the Malay Archipelago, between the Indian and Pacific Oceans.[11] After a vacation goes awry, protagonist Jason Brody must save his friends, who have been kidnapped by pirates and escape from the island and its unhinged inhabitants.

The game is amazing with its open natural environment and amazing storyline ! It plots the journey of the protagonist from a normal human to a Dangerous blood thirst and aggressive warrior ! The game has been a huge hit on the market and is played among many people all over the world.

One of the main bug found in most of the lack of audio in the game. I have seen many people complaining there is no audio in Far cry 3 and There is sound of all activities and audio but there is no sound for character dialogues. Most people can hear all the background sounds and music but the sound of characters in the ingame cutscenes are not hearing. You can see their lips moving but you can’t hear the dialogues

Why there is error in sound in Far cry 3 ? Why only character dialogues (cutscenes) are missing when background sounds, music etc are hearing fine ?

This is most possible due to outdated drivers, corrupted data files, errors in sound mixer or speaker setup etc.

Make sure that  your sound mixer is set to the correct number of speakers. If you are using headphone, make sure you choose headset and not speakers. If you are using sub, 5.1, 6.1 and 7.1 sound will have the dialog on the center channel whereas 2.0, 2.1 and 4.1 will have the dialog on the two front channels.

That means if you have only 2 front speakers and you set the sound to 5.1 or greater you will miss the dialogues that are to be played on the center speakers and the background audio, music etc will have no problems.

How to fix audio error in Far cry and get sound to character dialogues ?

1)Make sure you bought the original DVD and not any pirated ones

2)Make sure that you have all  the drivers updated. You may use DriverScanner to find if the audio drivers are upto date or note [Imp]

3) Now go to Control Panel  –> Hardware and Sound –> Sound –> Speakers / Headset

4) Now click on  Configure –> Stereo –> Next –> Front left and right –> Next –> Finish.

5) The error must be fixed by now. If it doesn’t then it’s possibly due to error in data files. please install a fresh copy of the game or download a fresh one


Hope this will fix the audio errors in your game and let you enjoy the far cry 3 with sounds and excitement to its most !!
